Crystal Clear

And to each of you in the US, Happy Labor Day!Crystal Chandelier
In home changes seem to be a continuing theme for me.  This weekend my husband & I hung a family heirloom in our dining room…a crystal chandelier.  It’s beautiful and I love how the crystals scatter light throughout the room creating rainbows that fill my spirit with joy.

You’ve likely noticed a recent rise in the popularity of crystal chandeliers, and they can easily be found at places like Pottery Barn.  At first this trend surprised me (despite my own love for crystals, stones, and anything that fills a room with rainbows), but I really see this trend as a reflection of our collective desire and need for clarity as we move forward making changes in our own lives.  Within each change we hold the desire to be ‘crystal clear.

Maybe you’re recalling such a time…or perhaps it is something you’re seeking right now…the desire for absolute certainty, to be without doubt, without fear, without unnecessary caution.  The desire to trust in what you know and feel, and to then move forward with absolute confidence.

It’s funny how something so simple as hanging a new chandelier can cause such a ripple of thought.  It has led me to wonder about the times in my life when my decisions were made with ‘crystal clariy’ and how I arrived there…is there a path that I can follow to prompt that clarity with more ease?

I’ve discovered that there are several things I do every time I am seeking clarity.  Many of them include spending times in nature, nurturing myself with salt baths, essential oils, good foods, or rearranging my home.  I would love to hear some of your ‘Clarity Rituals/Practices’.  I invite you to share them with me here

Have a beautiful week & with the Clarity of a Quartz Crystal…Shine Brightly!

Clarity Quotes

“I experience a period of frightening clarity in those moments when nature is so beautiful. I am no longer sure of myself, and the paintings appear as in a dream.”  -Vincent Van Gogh

“Although our intellect always longs for clarity and certainty, our nature often finds uncertainty fascinating.”  -Karl Von Clausewitz

“Rain is good for me. I feel like I achieve clarity actually when it rains. The longer I have to sit and wait, the clearer my game becomes to me.”  -Venus Williams

Quartz Crystal


7th Chakra – Crown Chakra

This morning…as I have everyday for the past week…I awoke singing “Joy & Freedom. Passion & Presence.   This is your life. This is your life.” 

Yes, this is an actual song that I have been listening to nearly every day for the past 2 weeks, but this morning as I arose singing those words I began reflecting on this past week and saw how those words were a part of every experience I had.  I saw how each experience was filled with opportunities to joyfully connect with the Divine!..From spending time in nature and welcoming the spring season with friends, family, and blissfilled music to celebrating the 90th birthday of my great-aunt Marie. 

This week was truly one of “joy, freedom, passion, and presence” and it feels perfect that each of those opportunities occurred leading up to todays message where I am including the image and stones for the Crown Chakra.

I invite you to bring “joy, freedom, passion and presence” to every experience this day offers you!..because “this is Your life…this is Your life.”

p.s. I hope you will be able to join me this week for my free conference call 8 Stones to Empower Your Journey ..Tuesday, March 27th at 7:00 pm cst.  I am so excited for this event…I don’t want you to miss it…register now!
